Personally, I don't care for that kind of play and I would have been all over the owners. IMO if the other dogs are showing teeth and snapping, they have no buisness being at a dog park. That is one of the reasons I don't like dog parks. Not necessarily bad dogs, just bad owners that think they don't need to supervise and correct their dogs. Very frustrating!
I totally agree with you 100%! People need to leave aggressive dogs home. I will say from experience, I remember taking my last puppy to the dog park and can always pin point a first timer. My first time I was so scared and defensive about my dog. Once I understood the difference of dog behavior I could make those decisions quicker and either leave the park or let it go.

For example we took our Boston to a meetup last month and you could see the first timer in panic mode trying guard every single dog that came within a foot of her dog. She even acused our dog of being aggressive even though she was just playing, she was  like (look at the hair in it's neck!) My dog has a harness that make her neck hair stick up funny sometimes! LOL

I always say that in the begining we are all defensive, but error on the side of caution. Other owners are the ones paying for you dog's vet bills and so don't feel bad if you feel that you need to just leave.

By the way, I always notice that small dogs are the snappers and biters most of the time and labs always tend to be the lumber oaf's who knock down puppies! Just a joke by the way, but there is a bit of truth to that...heheh

Well the owner who's dog was snapping was just like..oh she does that when she plays..i'm like woah fredo stay away from that freak show...lol... he did too
That sounds like a stupid dog owner, if you ask me. I know my dogs well and can tell if it gets serious right away. Their dog should not be allowed in a park!
